Over 35 years ago, our founder Sam Karam moved to the United States from Lebanon in search of a better life and future for himself and his family. In 1965, Sam started work as a laborer for Rene Charbonneau Home Improvements of New Bedford, MA. Through his on-the-job experience, Sam knew he wanted to run his own construction company. He knew the only way to create a successful business was to provide quality, honest, and knowledgeable service to his customers and do it right the first time.
Sam started by studying, apprenticing, and obtaining his Construction Supervisor license in 1974. Sam had no issues getting jobs in the business, since he was already well-known in the local industry for his quality and attention to detail. As time passed and the business flourished, he knew he wouldn’t be able to continue the business by himself and engaged his sons early on to learn his philosophy and trade knowledge.
In 2001, Sam entrusted his sons with the task of overseeing the day-to-day operations of the business he so carefully developed into the reputable, successful, and trusted contracting company it is today, continuing to use his philosophy of customer first along with research, training, and implementation of the latest in energy efficient building technology.
